We have a boatload of zucchini to use up from the garden, and I had made some homemade tomato sauce with a bunch of other veggies from the garden, so zucchini + tomato sauce = yummy Italian Style Zucchini Boats! Add a little chicken and melted cheese to the top and you have a delicious home cooked healthy meal 🙂
These zucchini boats bake in the oven super easy and they smell wonderful while they cook. If you buy the chicken pre-cooked and just add a store bought pasta sauce, then you will have a very quick meal. I recommend the chunky Ragu sauce if you are looking for an Italian sauce that tastes yummy. Otherwise, check out our Famous Homemade Tomato Sauce that beats anything you’ll buy from the store. It’s chunky and hearty and full of flavor and seasonings. It simmers for hours on the stove or in your Crock Pot and it tastes amazing!
These zucchini boats are full of yummy goodness. They taste like little pizzas and you can even individually tailor them for each of your family members, so feel free to add Italian sausage or try meatballs. You can just do veggies and no meat for the vegetarians. And even add more veggies inside the zucchini halves. I’m a fan of chicken because it’s easy to cook and keep frozen for quick meals, but get creative and see what you come up with! Please share your ideas below 🙂
